He Got Game is the acclaimed 1998 sports drama from legendary director Spike Lee (Do the Right Thing, Clockers), teaming he and Oscar nominee Denzel Washington once again for a stellar effort. Jake Shuttlesworth (Washington, Glory, The Hurricane, Philadelphia) is put in prison for the murder of his wife. He has not had a civil conversation with his son, Jesus (Ray Allen) since then, but years later he is offered a shorter prison sentence if he can convince Jesus to play basketball for Big State University. As the two confront the past and struggle to accept each other's lives, basketball is all they have in common. Jesus and his girlfriend Lala (Rosario Dawson, Death Proof, Alexander) are both faced with the harsh reality of greed, sex, drugs, bribery, and the gritty life of professional basketball. Meanwhile, Jake copes with life as a lonely felon while mending his relationships with his children.
